look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark black with a thin deep brown head that leaves a reddish trace on the glass before settling back. Smell is deep sweet caramel and coffee. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate with a tannic finish. Feel is heavy with a medium carbonation that adds a little bite. There's a definite alcohol presence, but it doesn't feel at all boozy.

This is well-balanced and interesting throughout the glass. If only I'd known when I bought this, I would have bought more than one.

Thanks to baybum for the share, though I may or may not have had a sample of this during the Voodoo Barrel Room release.

Dark brown-black pour, with a tan head that settled to a ringlet. Typical but good stouty aroma, dark malts, coffee, cocoa, roasty, toasted grain. Good balance of roasty bitterness and honey sweetness in the taste, with neither really gaining the upper edge, dark malts, coffee and semisweet chocolate, mild earthy hops. Body was on the heavier side of medium, alcohol was tame, carbonation was moderate. A solid and good-balanced imperial stout overall.
